I'm using Visual Studio 2005 and VB.NET.  I'm in the Global.asax file.  I want to make a global variable that will be used by all pages and sessions.  I declared a practice variable "thisGlobals" to see how to declare a Static variable, but I get the error "'Static' is not valid on a member variable declaration".    I can't see where I'm missing it.  Can you show me how to declare a Static variable?  Thank you.

<%@ Application Language="VB" %>
<script runat="server">
    Public Static thisGlobals As String

...the other Global.asax code goes here.

</script>

Use 'Shared' in VB.NET
Static is for C#
